Seth works closely with the DHI team, academics at The University of Sheffield and beyond, and a range of non-academic partners, to design and develop research projects, and contribute to the delivery of collaborative funded research, with a focus on corpus linguistics, text analytics, and digital humanities. He leads on the DHI’s Linguistic Concept Modelling work, which is based on the Linguistic DNA project and its development of novel operations for analysing meaning through lexical co-occurrence. That work includes ongoing projects with the BBC and the Oxford English Dictionary.
